Gigs & Graphics is a collaboration between Northern Lights, Sound City, Toucan Tango and The Paper Moon. We have programmed three components to engage all of us who love art and music – particularly those who study art and music, or work in these fields already – and are looking for connections, advice and want to geek out.
Firstly, we are organising an Industry Day and launch night on the 3rd of May. We have invited musicians, artists and music industry professionals who successfully inhabit the intersection of art and music to lead a day of workshops, talks and to take part in a Q&A and discussion with students, artists and musicians. We hope to generate an exciting exchange of ideas and opportunities for future work and collaborations.
In the evening we encourage everyone to stay, continue the conversations and have a drink as we launch the exhibitions to the public!
For the Gigs & Graphics International Print Exhibition we have invited internationally renowned gig poster artists to submit screen printed gig posters. The uptake has been remarkable and we are extremely proud to display these works in Liverpool. All work on display will also be for sale. We also have new posters created by a selection of these artists for musics artists playing Sound City Festival.
Throughout the weekend there will also be a selection of gig photography, visual arts, records, live printing, music and Liverpool music memorabilia.
